Lance Stephenson made history last night.
The five-star shooting guard and Maryland target led Lincoln High to the Brooklyn Borough championship, breaking the New York state scoring record in the process.
When the 6-foot-5 Stephenson scored a layup off the opening tap, it gave him 2,786 points for his career, breaking the old record set by former Lincoln star Sebastian Telfair, now with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Stephenson tallied 24 points and 11 rebounds and now has 2,808 career points. He averaged 40 points in the three Borough games, including a 50-point outburst against FDR.
The Washington Times’ Patrick Stevens watched some of Lincoln’s Friday-night game against St. Patrick’s on ESPN2, and offered a brief scouting report on Padgett.
It's difficult to try to translate 32 minutes worth of work into how a player might fit into a college team. But Padgett was particularly rugged on the offensive glass, so there's certainly some encouragement to be taken from his performance --- especially since that's something Maryland could use at this stage.
Jordan Williams scored a game-high 37 points, grabbed 20 rebonds and tallied five blocks to pace the Raiders. The senior center was 16-for-20 from the field for the game. Desmond Williams added 10 points and five assists while Richie Moran added four points and 5 assists.
Taran Buie went over the 1,000-point mark for his career to pace Bishop Maginn to an easy 100-64 Big 10 win over La Salle.
Buie finished with 21 points and now has 1,002. The Griffins also got 23 points from Jerel Scott.
• UM junior power forward target Tobias Harris had a big game for Long Island (N.Y.) Lutheran last night.
Tobias Harris had 31 points and 14 rebounds to lead Long Island Lutheran (14-8) in a 72-45 non-league win over St. Anthony's.
Will Regan scored a game-high 22 points to help the Vikings improve to 21-1 overall and 12-0 in the MMAA. Brendan Brady had 17 points and Reggie Martin added 14 for O’Hara (4-17, 2-10), which was plagued by a 21-7 third quarter.
“I most likely will wait until the summer,” Mychal said. “But as of now my top five schools would be No. 1 Virginia, No. 2 Florida, No. 3 Maryland, No. 4 Miami and No. 5 Clemson. If I had to add a sixth, I would say it is Wake Forest.”
Alyssa Thomas led a trio of Rams in double digits with 15 points and 16 rebounds. Sarah Dowhower and Gabby Singer combined for 25 more. Katie Lytle paced all scorers with 16 for the Panthers.
